powerpc: make feature-fixup tests fortify-safe
Testing the fortified string functions[1] would cause a kernel panic on boot in test_feature_fixups() due to a buffer overflow in memcmp. This boils down to things like this: extern unsigned int ftr_fixup_test1; extern unsigned int ftr_fixup_test1_orig; check(memcmp(&ftr_fixup_test1, &ftr_fixup_test1_orig, size) == 0); We know that these are asm labels so it is safe to read up to 'size' bytes at those addresses. However, because we have passed the address of a single unsigned int to memcmp, the compiler believes the underlying object is in fact a single unsigned int. So if size > sizeof(unsigned int), there will be a panic at runtime. We can fix this by changing the types: instead of calling the asm labels unsigned ints, call them unsigned int[]s. Therefore the size isn't incorrectly determined at compile time and we get a regular unsafe memcmp and no panic.
